Steve was one of the most interesting people we ever

Kurt, Mark, Krystal.....
I didn't know Stephen but I am sorry to hear of your
loss. No matter how many difficulties he may have encountered in life, he had some wonderful siblings and was fortunate
to have had a caring family. I am sure that in time the good memories of Stephen will come around and will stay with
you. Take care.
Monna, I'm sure you don't remember me, but my mother was a good friend of your mother.
I'm so sorry you have lost your son. It sounds as if his life was a great struggle. God bless all of you.
I was so sad to hear about your son. We
lost touch so many years ago. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
